Wear it Out
Champion a social justice cause by embroidering onto a favourite piece of clothing. Hand embroidery is making a massive comeback, and Showte of Empty.Room will show you how to embroider your protest with a deceptively simple embroidery technique. Once you know how, you can keep adding to your one-of-a-kind item of clothing and #wearitout.
Bring along an item of clothing to become a protest piece to champion a social justice cause.
Be inspired by the calls for social change and change-makers featured within the ‘Women Who Dare’ exhibition and stitch away the afternoon in conversation with others about the big and small issues close to our hearts. Inequity impacts us all, and when we choose to empower and promote justice, we can create a more equitable future for all.
Make your voice stand out and wear your protest with pride!

Time: 12:30pm to 3:30pm

Meet Showte of Empty.Room
Empty.Room began in 2014 as a space for Showte to bring her love of embroidery into the 21st century. Lovingly taught by her grandmother as a little girl, Showte sought to modernise her embroidery by stitching original illustrations and pop culture references. Empty.Room has been featured in The Eye Collective Magazine, has had a residency at Bunker Records and West Elm, participates in The Finders Keepers Market and can be found in the pages of Frankie Magazine.
